mike rivamonte : robot sculptures

Mike Rivamonte grew up in Huntsville, Alabama as a close neighbor to the US Space and Rocket Center (AKA "Space Camp"). He creates these lifelike robot sculptures using found objects, collectibles and antiques. In his artist's statement, Mike writes, "These sculptures reflect the imagination and influences of my childhood. They are my interpretation of robots and spacemen capable of flight and mischief." They do indeed look capable. And friendly too.
